    Looks ricey to me. (not Pricey, ricey meaning it should be on a lowered civic with driver that thinks he is soo cool with his gay ass little car).

    The second one is just a BHLM'd stock light.... save your self the coin and spend $10 on a rattle can and 4 hours of your time and do it much cheaper...

    Oh and the first one is just as hideous now as it always has been, let alone all of the issues with keeping the lights working in them people have.

    Oh add another $4.50 for some black silicon sealant then :p

    Seriously though at the top of the site under "Mods & Tutorials" check out BHLM under "cheap tacoma mods." It's pretty easy if you can bear to stick the lights in the oven for a bit. Direct link: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/technical-chat/4838-cheap-free-mods.html#post45442

    These aftermarket headlights are lacking on OEM quality, plus who wants to mimick a BMW

    if you like them, you like them- they change the whole look of the front of the truck. I think personally that both these lights AND the BHLM are both an incredibly mundane detail about the truck overall, and I would take my $225 and spend it on something that actually provided some benefit to performance, and not just looks. Just my .02.

    Not a fan of either, I personally love the 09+ TRD smoked headlights. I think I'm gonna take out the orange reflectors though

    Not a fan either. The Taco has some pretty awesome lights IMHO. I would not mess with them. For what its worth.

    I also got the regular halo not CCFL and like the CCFL much better. The leds on mine were shitty so I unplugged all of them and did this :)
